Hi there! My friend gave me his old laptop and told me to just put a hdd in there. And well i did, and when i go to install windows 10 it installs but after it rebooted it got stuck on Getting ready. I left it for a few hours and nothin. The hdd is brand new and the pc is fine so there are no problems there. And i tried reinstalling windows, nothin, tried a new iso, nothin, and well... Idk what to do. I typed this painstakingly on my phone so sry for any formatting errors or spelling mistakes. Any help appreciated. Thanks!


PS. The HDD is active while stuck on this screen
